I have come to set at liberty those who are bruised. -Luke 4:18 KJV
If only cuts were skin deep. You may have experienced emotional wounds to the soul. You may be broken and bruised and live day to day with unspeakable grief. Sometimes wounds from the past remain silent, yet painful. Sometimes coping and covering them seems best.
Jesus came to set you free. You do not need to perceive the world from that wounded lens any longer. Jesus came to bring liberty and freedom and to give you a full life, not one that is patched up and half full.
He can take the wounds, the sin, betrayal, every unjust act and cover them with His grace. You can accept His word above all other words spoken. You are His child bought with His powerful blood.
This Christmas season, forgive yourself and those who have sinned against you. Don’t allow wounds to infect your life and those around you. Take hold of God’s word. Read it, believe it, apply it. Today you can find liberty from every bruise life has thrown your way and at the end find that He can heal the broken and bind up every wound.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal all the broken areas of your life.
- Pray that the blood of Jesus will free you from every past sin, mistake or injustice.
